Have you heard of Adenomyosis?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ โ  @ashlee___smith shared with us a photo with her "new" uterus because she had undergone a hysterectomy and salpingectomy due to adenomyosis. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’œโ

  • Adenomyosisย can cause menstrual cramps, lower abdominal pressure, and bloating before menstrual periods and can result in heavy periods. ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโ

โ What is the difference between endometriosis and adenomyosis? ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œโ 

  • โ Ademomyosis and Endometriosis are the not the same condition.

  • Although they can occur together, endometriosis is when endometrial-like tissue cells is in a location outside of the uterus. โ 

  • Adenomyosis is when these cells exist or grow into the uterine wall๐Ÿ’Šโ 

โ Thank you so much Ashlee for sharing with us your fight with this disease!
